MILLERTON— One of the first items of business at the Village Board meeting on Monday, Oct. 2, was a request from Salisbury Bank and Trust Millerton Branch Manager Bianca Martin, for permission to participate in the farmers market.

Getting down and moving up

Eighth-graders at Eugene Brooks Intermediate School celebrated the end of the academic year with a semi-formal dance last week.

MILLERTON — In what looked like a scene from “The Wizard of Oz,” a building used by Rock Steady Farm and Flowers, at The Watershed Center at 41 Kaye Road in Millerton, was left in smithereens following a microburst on Monday, June 19.
The mini tornado ripped through the farm building as if it was built of matchsticks. It destroyed office equipment and devastated the farm’s seed catalogue. It also left three farmers inside at the time with minor injuries, ranging from a concussion to puncture wounds and cuts and bruises.

Is a shared garage facility in the future for North East and Millerton?

editor@millertonnews.com

MILLERTON — Frustrations are growing regarding where the town of North East’s new highway garage should be located. For the past few years, the Town Board has informed the community that its existing garage at 11 South Center St., Millerton, is in a state of disrepair. But various sites the town has considered to build new, or to renovate existing buildings, have fallen through — none quite measuring up anyway.

Through an anonymous donation, the book, “Chester Eisenhuth Photographer …” showcases beautiful photographs of Millerton from the 1930s through the 1950s. The 51-page, predominantly black-and-white book was compiled by Mark Goodman. But at $200, it was just too expensive for the library to buy outright. An anonymous donor helped solve that difficulty.
